Mertesacker warns Arsenal team-mates that huge chance was wasted

Per Mertesacker has thrown out a warning shot to his team-mates who may not get more chances for Arsenal thanks to dismal display.

The Gunners lost to Nottingham Forest at the weekend to give up their chance to win a fourth FA Cup in only five seasons, losing 4-2 to the lower league side.

Does Mertesacker still have a role to play at Arsenal?

Per Mertesacker is claimed to be in line for a new contract at present, but what role will he have to play for Arsenal next season?

The German international is yet to play a single match this term, having fallen foul of injury in pre-season, and is only nearing a return to action in the coming weeks.

Arsenal handed TRIPLE injury boost as EPL race heats up

Even though it looks like Arsenal have gotten over the recent deep in form and results, while managing to minimise the damage that the nasty month of November often inflicts, the task of winning the Premier League still looks like it will be a very tough one.

Why are Arsenal yet to extend Cazorla and others contracts?

Santi Cazorla is out of contract come the end of the season, so why have Arsenal failed to extend his deal?

The Spaniard has been one of our most influential players this season, being one of the first names on the teamsheet when fit, and I can think of no reason why he would be left to run his contract down this season.

Serie A star to replace Arsenal’s BFG in January?

The Arsenal captain and centre back Per Mertesacker is still out of action with the knee injury he picked up in pre-season. The chances are that Arsene Wenger was going to use the summer transfer market to boost our defence anyway but the long term absence of the World Cup winning German made it even more imperative.

Proof that Wenger made a BIG mistake with Arsenal captain?

The good news for the Arsenal club captain Per Mertesacker is that the recovery from the knee injury that the World Cup winning centre back picked up in the pre-season game against Lens is still going well. But with the BFG still a couple of months away from a comeback, the good news for Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal fans is that his replacement Shkodran Mustafi is doing very well indeed alongside Laurent Koscielny.

Mustafi the leader AND defender Arsenal have needed?

One of the criticisms that has been aimed at Arsene Wenger and Arsenal over the last 10 years, while the Gunners never really came close to winning the Premier League title that we all want, was that he failed to recruit the players that Arsenal needed.
